Creative Writing Workshop: Fairytale Factory

Creative Writing Workshop: Fairytale Factory

Saturday 16 January, 11am
Once upon a time in a far away land…boring! Forget everything you thought you knew about fairy tales at this weekend’s creative writing workshop. We’ll be rewinding, remixing and mashing up some of our favourite fairy tales to create brand new stories! What would Cinderella use a smartphone for? How would the Princess and the Pea sound as a poem? What would happen if Snow White met the Big Bad Wolf? Get ready to switch up times, genres and characters in our Fairy Tale Factory!

This live and interactive sessions will be led by Stephanie and Lauren from the Children’s Literature unit at Newcastle University. They're both writers and they've got tons of terrific techniques for creating characters, structuring storylines and putting pen to paper. There'll be plenty of opportunity to chat, ask questions and share your brilliant creations as part of the workshop. 

Tickets are £10 per household. This event is aimed at children age 7-11 and their families. Younger siblings are welcome to join in but may need extra adult support.

This is an online event and will be delivered via Zoom. You'll need to download the app and create a Zoom account before the session. The meeting link and joining instructions will be sent by email after booking.
